Does everyone else have foam lining the bottom steering column?

Hi folks,

I had my '08 X5 in for service recently to address a number of items before the warranty ran out, which included addressing a groaning noise when the steering wheel adjusts itself on startup. Happy to say the groining noise seems to be gone (knock on wood) but by chance when I went to look at the panels/steering column, I noticed there is a piece of foam that lines the bottom of the column (spongy material in nature - sandwiched between the dash panel and steering column).

I'll try to post pics later when I have access to the car again, but I do know when comparing to my e90 - the 3 series does not have a foam liner exposed at all. Would be curious to see/verify if this indeed was not put back correctly or if everyone else's E70 has foam liner exposed as well.

Many thanks in advance,
Tae

I have a 2008 X5 as well and I have the foam lining as well. It is weird why they would leave it exposed like that as the 2011 335d loaner and the 2011 535i GT loaner I had didn't have that.

Thanks so much for confirming. I guess I never noticed for the past couple of years but it just seems so odd to have it exposed like that. It just doesn't look finished.
